Mr OSBORNE - The honorable member's question raises important and detailed matters which I will endeavour to answer as shortly as I can. The constitutional position of the new independent state of Ghana is precisely the same as that of Australia. Canada and New Zealand. It is an independent dominion within the British Commonwealth.

Mr Peters - I rise to order, Mr. Speaker. Is the Minister entitled to read a prepared answer to a question without notice?

Sir Arthur Fadden - The Minister anticipated the question.

Mr OSBORNE - I made notes as the question was asked. The honorable member can see them for himself as I hold them up now.
